National Police Week is nearly upon us across the country, but most notably at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington DC. In this episode of the Policing Matters podcast, sponsored by Staccato, host Jim Dudley speaks with National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) CEO Marcia Ferranto and Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) Communications Director Sara Slone about how these organizations serve the law enforcement community, culminating with National Police Week events.
Marcia discusses the three pillars of the NLEOMF’s mission: honoring the fallen, promoting officer safety and wellness and maintaining the National Law Enforcement Museum to honor the story of American law enforcement. Sara discusses the work of C.O.P.S. to provide resources and support for the families and co-workers of officers killed in the line of duty.
